Jewellery from South Africa

For centuries fine jewelry has been a mark of prominence and prosperity. It has decorated and defined, adding luster to the body as an intricate paint stroke does to a masterpiece. Single masterpieces have served as a token of love, a sign of endearment and a treasured heirloom. The preciousness of a perfectly set stone has been treasured throughout history.

South African Jewellery has its place in this glittering world of splendor. South Africa is recognized as a reliable supplier of diamonds, gold, silver and precious stones. At one stage, it was producing some of the largest and most magnificent diamonds known to mankind. Today, it still furnishes the market with these high value goods but it is also home to some exceptionally skilled jewellery crafters.

Jewellery stores can be found throughout South Africa in malls and shopping centres. Numerous pieces featuring African wildlife and themes make the ideal gift for a loved one back home. Be sure to shop around for the best prices and quality though.

Almost 50 years ago I had a penpal from South Africe (I live in America). He sent me a pin that had 2 giraffes and a tree on it, they are sterling silver. It also has a horn shape piece of ivory about 1 1/2 inches long and on the back it says Simba. I'm curious as to what something like this would cost now. I assume that Simba is the name of the company that made the pin. I don't wear it alot but when I do wear it the pin gets noticed. It is very unique. I would appreciate any information I can get about this. Thank you.

Absolutely. You can find the duplicated signet rings that are commonly available but if you are looking for something extraudinary Jenna Clifford is the way to go. I actually work for her now and can guarentee that you will have the most extraudinary ring and a low value. JC is the best
